Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: LIVE555 Media Server: Denial of Service (GLSA 200803-22)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 13, 2008
Bug(s): #204065
ID: 200803-22

Synopsis

A Denial of Service vulnerability has been reported in LIVE555 Media Server.

Background

LIVE555 Media Server is a set of libraries for multimedia streaming.

Affected Packages

Package: media-plugins/live
Vulnerable: < 2008.02.08
Unaffected: >= 2008.02.08
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Luigi Auriemma reported a signedness error in the parseRTSPRequestString() function when processing short RTSP queries.

Impact

A remote attacker could send a specially crafted RTSP query to the vulnerable server, resulting in a crash.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All LIVE555 Media Server users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-plugins/live-2008.02.08"
Note: Due to ABI changes, applications built against LIVE555 Media Server such as VLC or MPlayer should also be rebuilt.
